Lemonade Day Teaches Business Lessons

Eighteen (18) young people and their families participated in Lemonade Day by running four stands on Saturday, May 4. After planning and preparing since March, the kids were able to try out their recipes, menus, and customer service skills as they sold to real customers from Buttermilk Creek Park, Lakeside Park Lighthouse, Lakeside Park Playground, and S & B Alteration on Main St. The money they earned is theirs to keep, as are the business lessons that they and their parents will use in the future.
